    It seems we are about to lose yet another large pine. This is white pine. Not usually affected by the blight. It may only be old. It could also be a victim of the drought.

    I've been using Ubuntu since 2007. It's a great OS, although Linux has so many flavors it's hard for to me to stay with one. Mint, OpenSuse, Fedora and PCLinux are just several of the many different versions, which have made me become a "distro-hopper".

    A great universal truth taught to me by a favorite art history professor. Thanks for the refresher. I couldn't remember how it went, exactly.

    There is simply nothing to say....http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/...-michael-life/ After reading this I will admit I stole the roast chicken and both my dogs had a feast. I then went and brought home take out. My family looked at me and nodded..they understood. I do not know if my dogs would do anything remotely like that. I do know that when I read about a dog being able to sense things my husky will not leave someone's side if they are ill. Does not matter if they laze around the house, bark at the neighbors horses, or smile with unbridled joy as they chase some perceived threat in the yard, They bring unquestioned love and loyalty...and in my book that is a rare quality for any living thing.

    Those rescue stories are so amazing. I saw one on tv about a retriever that pulled a young boy from a lake. He saw the boy fall off the dock and then he barked until some people came and helped. But in the meantime he held the boy up out of the water.

    Another I saw on TV was extraordinary. Two boys were playing on a slide with a bungee cord. (Weird, I know) they were young, maybe 7, wearing zippered jackets. One boy at the top of the slide had the bright idea to hook the bungee cord to the back of the other boy's jacket when he went down the slide. The boy started strangling. The first boy didn't know what to do but he did run to get get help. His mother and the boy's mother were a few minutes away in the next yard. In those crucial minutes, the golden retriever who had been watching, jumped up on the bottom of the slide and pushed on the boy's feet as hard as he could to keep him from choking. The dog's toenails were slipping on the slide. And how did he know enough to do that? Well he saved that boy. It was just incredible.

    Mutts are the best! Isn't it shocking what trouble toddlers can get up to? It's a wonder any of us have lived so long.
